This includes processing any personal data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.
C&P will collect personal data about you which will include your name, address, details of your insurance requirements and contact information. Depending on the nature of the insurance, we will also need to collect sensitive personal information such as health conditions or any convictions. Please refer to the list below for more examples:
This information can relate to anyone seeking an insurance quote from us now or in the future or whose details are provided during the quotation process, policyholders and anyone named on or covered by the policy.
